status is a standard DT property; I certainly wouldn't expect its
presence to be mandatory (there's a defined default), nor would I expect
each device's binding to redefine this property.

Should the standardized cell-index property be used here instead? Or,
perhaps that property is deprecated/discouraged...

Similar comment as above.

That seems a little dangerous w.r.t. multi-platform zImage. Can the
required headers be moved out to somewhere more public to avoid this?

I assume that means we can't merge this driver yet. The cover letter
mentioned a desire to merge this for 3.9; there's not much time to get
official IDs assigned, then.

Why isn't that just platform_driver_register()?


"GPL v2".
